I wrote this story based on a dream I had several years ago. The Bible say's in the days of Moses they had the laws of God engraved on tablets of stone. Today, let the Holy spirit engrave them upon the fleshly tablets of thine heart...
Not that I want to make you cry...But I've always loved those songs that go right for the deepest, darkest, hardest things we have to deal with in this chaotic world.
I keep hoping to find ways to write about things so personal and so true that, like digging through to China...
As I was growing up, many times I would sit in a nearby room and listen to my mother pray. Sometimes she would pray for over 2 hours naming all twelve of her children and I would patiently wait to hear my name and hope she would pray for me. My eyes would tear up and I felt so...
I was five. I would pretend I had a cane and top hat like the WB frog and, tap dancing around, I'd sing,
I'll never run away
I'll never run away
I'll never run away again. (repeat 20 times)
Needless to say, I had never actually run away at that point. Poetic license and...
Well most of my songs are intended to be closer to the genre of the fray (pop-rock and speak to a deeper level of emotion than most)...this next one I can envision as more of a country song (like one of Taylor Swift's more upbeat songs where she kind of sing/talks. Let me know...
My name is Michael Snyder I live in a small town in Kentucky I'm 19 years old and I want to be a songwriter. All my life I was always making people laugh and acting silly to see people smile but somewhere down the line I started to feel like there was something different about me...
If i could walk
Up the highest mountain
Fly the sky's
An swim any ocean
Il give my all
To come rescue you
Spread your wings
Dont be afraid I will guide you thru
Il stop the rain an showers
Live our life
Like its our final hours (oohhhhh)
ones to fly
Never knowing the call
know when to let us go
intermission for the show
I can let go and still love
I'll fly with you when the wind is slow
I met a cat with no eyes
And she sees everything
I know a dog born with one leg
We cannot catch him
For me, being able to write has been a blessing. Ever since i was young i've had so much crap going through my head. Writing was the way to organise it all and was my way of therapy. I can go to the deepest, darkest parts of my mind and call it "art".
Writing is what i go to...
This song came to me in a very odd way. I woke up one morning singing the chorus and as I laid there, I thought to myself, "I've never heard this song before!" but some of the words sound familiar. I woke up singing, 'My cup is filled up it runneth over, my cup is filled up it...
write it. I always thought that more the point than playing someone else's stuff.
I've written loads of songs. I have had a couple of albums released and won a couple of awards over the years. I'm in a dry period in the last few months but sometime soon the writing bug will...
La reine pour ton coeur,
comme parler une langue tres froid,
est-ce que tu voudrais une entree?
La huitre tare sont ouverte,
La huitre tare et l'abus sexuel.
Le roi est le soleil tres brille!
retire-toi avant de jouir,
la huitre est chaud, attache-moi!
I'd greatly appreciate any feedback you have on this song. I wrote it about my lying cheating ex.
I trusted you, I let you in, That's when all the pain begins.
I knew you were lying, but I refused to believe you'd betray me.
Had I known who you were then, I'd be far better off...
I'm so used to constantly having other musician's works stuck in my head. Well I recently started writing again and within a few days, I've only written about 5 songs. One of them, this one line, keeps going over and over in my head. It's just weird, though. Usually when I have a...
This is a song I wrote about 2 months after me and my significant other started dating:
You're an elegantly bound book
But you're so open
Don't need a bookmark to keep track,
I think you know this
I want to want you.
I can't stop thinking of you
When emotions are high
Apparently I write too many lyrics. I think this is the 6th song I posted. I hope nobody is getting annoyed with me and I'd love to hear your opinions of what you think about my lyrics so feel free to leave a comment below :) I'm thinking this genre for this song would pop-rock...
I don’t wanna catch you in anymore lies
I don’t wanna know if this isn’t right
The pain of letting go isn’t worth the fight
And I don’t wanna see through the look in your eyes
I don’t wanna doubt you anymore tonight
I just wanna believe that your really mine
I wrote this song one night quite easily and quickly - then I proposed to my now wife. We'd been livin together for 12 years and I thought that was long enough...people who say that marriage after a long period of living together doesn't change anything - bullshit...everything...
born from song
created in the dissonnce and harmony of this aotearoa sublime
carved in symphonies of community
my life is the empty page
for every lyric
in this way
through verse, chorus, bridge and refrain
for I would stand upon a...
I am by no means on a professional level of songwriting at all. I mostly just keep a notebook that I scribble lines in whenever they come to me and sometimes when I'm playing guitar lyrics just come out of me and I have no idea where they come from. Lately though I am sooooo...
Its Saturday night and Im all alone
Sitting here right by my phone
And Im not fooling anyone, no, no
But no one knows what Im all about
They look at me without a doubt
But they dont know anything, no, no
Its all right here
I dont care where it is that I...
When I was a little child my mum would tell me that I write my songs down. I would sing and sing. But alas I had stage fright. I did though get a journal with the Eiffel tower on the cover. I wrote a song a day and for long enough to write 12 to 17 full songs and 4 to 6 half...
ook, heres another one I wrote. This one though is much more recent. I wrote it last week.
I'm always looking for the one person
who'll over look my flaws and understand my mind
its a big day you may meat that, special person
Recently over the summer I discovered song writing and I'm hooked on it. I've written dozens of songs and it really helps me get my emotions out. I recommend song writing to others as a form of expression
I've been writing songs for thirty years, but I'm not prolific. In the early years I wrote more because I was in bands that needed sets to be freshened up with new material. Gradually the 'need' to write songs has withered but the urge hasn't. Now when I'm writing songs...
This song I wrote a while ago when I had strong feelings for a girl... I guess this is the best time to share it with yall...
Im sorry, if im coming on too strong
But I have waited far too long
To say four words that can make or break.
So will you be mine? please take your time...
im just starting out as a songwriter and was looking for some feed back so heres my first song ive ever written.
maybe one day you will walk down the stairs to something that you deserve and i don't know if i...
This song is the title of my CD I recorded about 15 years ago. It's about the wise man that built his house on the rock and the foolish man that built his house on the sand. When writing this song as so many of the songs I've written before I don't mean literally but rather...
I've written over 100 songs. My true dream is to connect with some producers who want to collaborate with me and make a song, and I'd hire singers.
The bad part is I live in a small town and don't know any singers. I've tried reaching out to people on Craigslist, to no avail...
When I was 13 I wrote my first song.It was horrible.I didn't like it at all.Later on I rewrote a song for a magical girl anime I liked.A girl in my class told me it wasn't all that good.I stopped writing after that.Around August this year I made friends with a translyrics writer...
There is a time for those tears,
Moments to collide with the knife,
But tonight let me show you the world,
The world of insanity,
Twisted corners with the jagged screams,
Dancing horrors from the nightmares within,
Every step I take causes the voices to cry in pain,
Always Making up for lost time, can't get ahead for falling behind
In a world that is moving way too fast.
With all this modern technology, so many people living with so many needs
Planning for their futures, but still reminded of their past.
All the riches this world can hold...
Its been a while since I've turned more than one song in a month. I've turned two thus far this month. They're not complicated pieces by any means, but they are what I like to call thinking pieces. Some what simple music (ok, a few small tricks between the meter of the lyrics...
You make me smile
Lasting for a while
Your like a shining star
Just the way you are
Your face, Your face
It makes my heart pace
Your so handsome
Just the way you are
Your smile, Your smile
It makes me want to run a mile
Your so handsome
Just the way you are
Nothing better than writing a song, getting it together with a band and playing it live, or better still hearing it on the radio (yes it has happened quite a few times) ... or best still seeing it on TV (a couple of times) .. like a childhood dream come true ..
I am a songwriter trying to figure out the direction I should go to pursue this as a career.. it will ultimately be my decision but I'm struggling trying to find avenues to pursue. I have varying influences from Hard Rock to Punk To even as far as Irish Folk Rock. I would...
I am 23 an been writing since I was 14
But use to hide my writing skills away
Only recently I have came out my shell
And showed family an friends
They say I have got talent and could progress
As a songwriter/lyricist
I would like to work with other songwriters
Help them an...
Child all alone in a big old world.Child born, but was not wanted.Kept alive, just be unwanted by the world.Not wanted, and not loved, and totally not wantedScared little girl, afraid to speak upBig bad man, will hurt her if she does.She a pretty little girl, who wants to be a...
She walks in with a,
Smile and a grin,
And laughter for everyone,
always there for everyone,
No matter how much,
She's hurting inside,
She never shows it,
No she never shows it,
She's filled with love,
She's filled with joy,
Nobody knows that,
She is hurting,
Cause nobody see's...
since my early teens and still do now. When I was younger I was a typical moody teenager and wrote a lot of angsty stuff. Now I am all grown up (ish) I am more content and find I tend to write comedy songs. I record with a friend as part of a duet called the Slugges. Anyone...
Try to see
Try to see,
What I'm feeling inside,
They can't see,
What I feel inside,
Why can't they see,
Why don't they see,
That I'm crying in my bed,
Beggin for forgivness,
Hopin something someone will,
Take away all this pain,
But they have to try to see.
So I'll laugh,
Songwriting is the best form of expression to me. Not only do I get to make music, but I get to let it out though playing it.
The writing process is always interesting to me. I'd love to hear some lyrics and, more importantly, why you wrote the song, what the lyrics mean, and...
Be nice. It's a diamond in the rough. Let me know what you think? And any suggestions :)
Intoxicating, just like an adrenaline rush
You knocked me off my feet, boy you were oh so lush
Now I’m sitting here picking up the pieces
But I finally have a thesis
What is love?
